Seasonal flu (also known as influenza) is a highly infectious illness caused by a flu virus.

The virus infects your lungs and upper airways, causing a sudden high temperature and general aches and pains.

You could also lose your appetite, feel nauseous and have a dry cough (see Symptoms). You may need to stay in bed until your symptoms get better.
